Woke up to a dark sky this morning. Grabbed the laptop after I heard thunder & checked out the radar. It looked like it could be a bad storm, lots of orange on the screen but it ended up being mostly rain. We do need the rain. It has been dryer than normal here. Last night in Illinois, a few places got baseball size hail. Wow! Can't imagine how that sounded! Hope everyone recovers quickly from the damage that caused.
Here is the order I am putting in today...
Siberian Pea Shrub 4
Russian Olive 4
Paw Paw 4
Paw paws are zone 4-8 and are said to taste like banana custard. I've never ate one, so I'll take their word for it. They can weigh up to a half a pound per fruit. It has very high protein, Vitamin A & C.
Gooseberries are zones 3-8 and make delicious pies & preserves and should bear after the first year.
Aronia (Nero) has up to 10 times the antioxidants as other berries and is rich in Vitamin C. Can be planted in zones 3-8. It is also called the chokeberry.
That's it for ordering plants this year. I will still be buying seedlings like tomatoes, peppers, etc. since I can't start my own this year due to the house being on the market.
That's all for today. I need to get to work...
